Yes, you can also play golf in
Baden-Baden! When the weather is good, I love to relax with a game
of golf and enjoy the wonderful setting here on the edge of the
Black Forest. Such days are very special to me as my time prevents
me from playing more often!
Are you unaware of how befitting
the golf courses here, in and around Baden-Baden, are for mental
relaxation? Then let me elaborate a little.
The natural scenery of the Black
Forest and Alsace region into which the golf courses are embedded
is simply outstanding! At some, such as the
Soufflenheim/Baden-Baden Golf Club, the beautifully landscaped
lakes, hillocks and trees have a positive effect on the golfers'
mind, body and mood during the round.
The drive to this golf club in
Alsace is most enjoyable: it is accompanied by beautiful scenery
and I normally combine a game of golf here with a visit to one of
the local restaurants that can be found on the way. A good meal and
a refreshing drink in friendly surroundings can also, however, be
had in the clubhouse at the golf club. This golf course is suitable
for beginners as well as experienced golfers. One final point of
note … it does have a very special flair!
Or do you prefer to decide
spontaneously regarding an afternoon of golf? This is also no
problem at all: at the Baden-Baden Golf Club you can play without a
tee time because here the motto is: "Come and Play"! This course,
however, rarely forgives a bad shot meaning that pin-point accuracy
and straight shots are called for otherwise your ball will end up
in the trees!
And if you want a real challenge, I
can recommend the St. Leon-Rot Golf Club towards Heidelberg ... but
only if you are a very good golfer!
I personally started playing golf
relatively late - in 2009 in Switzerland. I had the pleasure of
being taught by a Scottish professional which for me added an extra
touch of magic to the learning process! One thing you mustn't
forget, however … it's never too early or too late to start playing
